Promote the InVEST Scholarship Contest, Teacher and Volunteer of the Year Awards

The InVEST Scholarship contest is just around the corner and InVEST needs your help in promoting the contest to students.

Each year, InVEST struggles to get in more scholarship applications and encourage students from new schools to apply. We’re asking your help to spread the word about our scholarship program in hope that with your help, we will have the most scholarship applications to date and in more states!

We’re hoping at least one volunteer from each of our over 500 programs can commit to speak to InVEST students once about the scholarship program. InVEST has a great PowerPoint available for volunteers to explain the scholarship program and process and cool handouts that include 3D like glasses and a hidden message to distribute to students.

To find out if there is an InVEST program near you, visit the Where is InVEST section of the website and click on your state. If you’d like to volunteer in a local program, contact Jennifer Robinson at

In addition, the InVEST Teacher of the Year award and Dach Award (Volunteer of the Year) are also in need of nominations. 

The Gary Preston InVEST Teacher of the Year award acknowledges an InVEST teacher who has made substantial contributions to his or her InVEST students. These individuals are often nominated by agent liaisons, state/local agents’ associations or students. InVEST is pleased to name the InVEST Teacher of the Year Award in honor of Florida educator Gary Preston. The award will bear Preston's name for the next five years in recognition of his distinguished career teaching InVEST for more than two decades. 

The DachAward, named in honor of the programs founder, recognizes an InVEST volunteer who has made tremendous contributions in fostering the programs growth and development.
